within the margin of error and these states could easily decide the election. in the case of romney, if he wins florida and north carolina, which he has to win, if he wins virginia and ohio and one more state, any other state, then he's the president. if he loses ohio, if he could win wisconsin and colorado, he could win. it really is -- i think at this point the candidates who are crisscrossing the country talking themselves hoarse is not about changing minds, it's get out the vote. get more supporters to the polls. >> this is like a jigsaw chest board with different combinations. one from column a and b. from your point of view, what should we look out for? ohio, is that where the race could be decided in. >> you would think but there's a credible way -- ohio is very important and would make it harder for romney to win if he didn't win ohio but if he takes wisconsin and colorado, he's got more votes than he would in ohio. so it would -- it's going to be fascinating to watch. also, iowa comes into play, another close state. the des moines register endorsed romney, the first time they e
